HCA Healthcare Awards of Distinction 2022 Nominations

The HCA Healthcare Awards of Distinction – including the Frist Humanitarian Award, Excellence in Nursing Award and Innovators Award – are the highest honors we bestow on our employees, physicians and volunteers. These awards honor exceptional individuals whose professional and personal lives reflect the patient-centered, entrepreneurial and humanitarian values upon which HCA Healthcare was founded.

  • The Innovators Award, which recognizes individuals who advance the mission of the organization through innovation and inspire a culture of innovation.
